Shelburne artist Darlene Hassall is well known for her abstract art and portraits.

Darlene Hassall’s exuberant colours and wavery lines filter remembered pleasures with childlike joy. “I want the lack of logic and use of colour to cause the viewer to stop and take another look. Then laugh or say, ‘I have been there. Where is that?’ It is anywhere you have been – I want to capture a memory, to evoke the feelings we have when we remember those moments in life.” You can see the Shelburne artist’s work in Toronto this summer at a show by ten Headwaters artists at Art Square Gallery & Café (July 26–August 8), and locally in October during the North of 89 Studio Tour and Brushfire Artists’ fall show.  darlenehassall.com
